Public Records Requests

Documents or recorded proceedings of the Court are public records subject to disclosure under the Public Records Act. Exceptions to this include, as authorized by statute or rule, an individual judge ruling or a court order restricting access to records in an individual case. Additionally, the Clerk will protect non-public information as determined by court ruling and statute. Such information may include social security numbers, bank numbers with access/security codes, and victim name(s) and address(es) in criminal proceedings.

The Clerk of Courts office provides public viewing and/or copies of court records through the File Room located in the basement of 205 S. High Street, Akron, OH 44308. We highly recommend obtaining records from 2002 to the present on our website, where you can get immediate access. If you are looking for records prior to 2002, submit a Public Records Form by e-mail, mail, or in-person.
